house reporter, glenn thrush. a tale of two messages, the romney campaign is pushing the theory that they're in the lead, down the stretch. with an e-mail this morning read, we're feeling the momentum. the president is playing like he's behind and fighting for every vote. after a red eye flight from l.a. the president was up early for a rally in tampa and delivered doughnuts to firefighters by 7:30 this morning. obama the underdog versus romney the ascent dant is the dominant narrative on the trail. >> patrol this in my voice is getting hoarse. have to keep on keeping on. >> we're going to win november 6th. >> we're going to pull an all-nighter. no sleep. >> we've had a number of debates lately. you know they have really propelled our campaign. >> i believe in you. i need you to keep believing in me. >> the obama campaign is slipping. and shrinking. >> we always knew this was going to be a close race from the start. folks in your business were writing me off a year ago, saying there's no way i would win. >> if i'm elected -- no, when i'm elected -- >> i've come to ask you for yo
.8% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 46.9% the new york times 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win 291 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 247. 270 are needed to win the white house. 538 says the president has a 71% chance of winning. romney has a 29% chance. and as of tonight, 7.7 million people have already voted and that includes the president who cast his own ballot today in chicago. we'll have much more on the early voting later on in the show. but we start with tonight's lead. mitt romney's mourdock mess. senate candidate richard mourdock's god intended rape comments are now threatening to undermine mitt romney's careful effort to appeal to voters as moderate mitt. desperate to hide the extreme republican positions on women's health, romney is just wishing and hoping this will all go away. but someone forgot to tell the press corps this morning in ohio. >> governor, do you wish senator mourdock would pull that ad? >> thank you. have a good day. >> you, too. >> that's me? >> have a great day. >> thank you. have a good day. but please don't ask be ab
economy and what each side would do to fix that situation. president obama and governor romney each had a chance to explain what would happen to your taxes they were in charge. >> the question is not where we have been but where we are going. >> it's going to take a different path, not one x have been on, not the one the president described as a top down cut taxes for the rich. that not what i'm going to do. >> it's not possible to come up with enough loopholes for individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. >> there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they are advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving opportunities to middle class. >> i have got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that not always true but repeating it hoping i will believe it. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> we do better when the middle class is doing well. by giving them those tax cuts they have more money in their pocket so maybe they can buy
according to governor romney. women are still thinking about a lot of important things, like how fast they can get out of office and back into the kitchen to cook for the families. >> if you're going to have women in the work force sometimes they need to be more flexion i'll. my chief of staff had two kids still in school. she said i can't be here until 7:00 or 8:00 at night. i need to get home to be there for making dinner for my kids. >> well, even though he seemed to say that the most important thing to working women is how quickly they can get home to cook romney claimed that he sought qualified women to work for him. >> i went to my staff and i said how come all the people for the jobs are all men. they said they have the qualifications. i said gop, can't we find some women to are qualified. i went to women's groups and said can you find folks. they brought us whole binders full of women. >> binders full of women. it was the quote that launched a thousand tweets. behind the awkward sort of wording is a complete lack of specifics. he still has not said whether he supports the lily
say the numbers are in their favor. but president obama and governor romney are barnstorming coast to coast in a race against the clock. right now it is 3-2-1 countdown as in 321 hours until the first polls close. meanwhile in the nation's heartland could republican's senate nominee richard murdoch take romney down with him? among undecided suburban women voters in other states. >>> and you have to pull up a chair to see the latest ad from clint eastwood. he is lending his now unmistakable voice to a new tv ad by the country's biggest republican super pac. good morning from chicago. it is 13 days until election day. as we told you, wednesday, october 24, 2012. this is "the daily run-down." i am chuck todd. let's get to the first reads of the morning. president obama and governor romney crisscrossed the country today with a new urgency. though the campaigns are still fighting over a slice of undecided voters, just look at their schedules and it is clear the focus really is more on turning out their own voters. the base voters. the president. he begins a frenetic 48-hour tour which w
boss. we know mitt romney is the candidate for the 1%. his tax plan is a handout to ceos, to the people in the quiet rooms. his policies are geared towards those who are most well off. we know that. but now we are learning something else and it raises the question of whether he and some prominent ceos are trying to scare workers in this election. in a newly surfaced conference call to a business group, mr. romney spent many minutes criticizing president obama. then, he is heard urging employers to tell their workers how to vote. >> i hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. >> what is in the best interest of their job? and after everything i just told you, you know what that means. romney went on to say this. >> whether you agree with me or president obama or whatever your political view, i hope -- i hope you pass those along to your employees. nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business. because i th
obama and mitt romney. packed a punch. the biggest bellwether of the night might be a back and forth, not over the middle east, china or europe but ohio. a battle over the buckeye state was one of the few topics that pushed romney to engage the president and ohio's one of seven battleground states. we'll show you where you'll see the candidates nonstop. one state not on the list anymore, nevada. find out why the silver state may be gold for the president's electoral vote. good morning from lynn university in boca raton, florida. two weeks until election day. let me repeat, it's two weeks until election day, and also october 23, 2012, this is "the daily rundown" and i'm chucked to. let's get to first reads. the third and final debate between president obama and mitt romney was a study in contrast. but it wasn't contrast on the debate itself. an aggressive president acting like a candidate with more to prove and a risk averse romney playing prevent defense, aiming to do no harm. president gamed arm with zingers trying to disqualify romney as potential commander in chief and romney hit
the republican party of alabama is why you should vote for mitt romney. undecided ohio voter, meet a busful of alabama republicans. what could possibly go wrong? i wonder if they will have matching hats. that does it for us tonight. now it's time for a special live friday edition of "the last word." have a great night. >> we have hit the point in the election where people begin to lose their minds. the jobless rate fell below 8% in september which is good news for president obama and a new conspiracy theory for some republicans. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> a major victory for president obama. >> the white house got some welcome news. >> the unemployment rate has fallen who its lowest level since i took office. >> this is excellent news. >> it's definitely a good day for the american economy. >> 7.8. >> 7.8. >> there's no way that's right. >> there are some people out here who don't like this number. >> the harsh back and forth. >> over today's jobs reports. >> now we've sea got jobbers. >> business pioneer jack welch calls these numbers into question. >> t
to turn back now. >> mitt romney also campaigning in virginia. not as impressed. >> we don't have to stay in the path we've been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. and the unemployment rate as you know this year has come down very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is prime rarely due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> what mitt romney is getting at there, when you look at a report like this where the unemployment rate is dropping but there aren't that many new jobs, you worry immediately that you're seeing a kind of trick. in particular, you worry that the unemployment rate dropped because discouraged workers gave up and they stopped looking. that did not happen this month. the number of people participating in the labor force went up, which means the rate didn't drop because there are fewer people looking for work. average hourly earnings also increased and here's the bad ne
obama's swing state firewall stand up to romney's momentum. how will hurricane sandy shake up the campaign? and with just nine days to go, could a final october surprise send this election into overtime? questions for our headliners. stephanie cutter and newt gingrich. >>> plus, insight and analysis from our roundtable. >>> hello again. with just nine days to go, the october surprise is here. hurricane sandy. threatening a massive stretch of the u.s. from virginia to new england. all of the way to the great lakes. it's caused both candidates to scramble their schedules. we'll get into that, plus our latest abc news/washington post poll in just a moment. but let's begin with sam champion from lower manhattan. he's following the track of sandy right now. good morning, sam. >> good morning, george. the satellite picture will show you this storm is one of the largest that we have ever seen in the atlantic basin. the latest out from the hurricane center, it feels exactly the same way for several days, making a left-hand turn to for the coastline by monday. we got tropical-force win
do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that, and i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people, but it's just not the case. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your facts. i don't have any plan to cut education funding and grants for people on going to college i'm continuing on growing. is it so critical it's worth paying to china? i apologize, mr
/50, >>> it's national bologna day. it really is, and with 13 days to go, mitt romney says yes, he does want you to vote for a republican senator who thinks rape is something that god intended to happen. >> are you fired up? are you ready to go? >> the campaign enters the final stretch. >> 13 days of the race for the white house. >> if the schedules, events and remarks are any indication. >> you'll know where the race will be won. >> we'll win iowa again. >> we're going to win colorado. >> the president will hit four states just today. >> racking up the miles on air force one. >> 5300 miles. >> we know the thing is really close. >> how close is it? >> it's all about math versus momentum. >> our campaign is gaining. >> do they know something that we don't? >> this is a bluff. >> mitt romney still has an electoral math problem. >> our campaign is gaining. >> fake it until you make it. >> mitt romney talks out of all sides of his mouth. >> this fall i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> life is a gift from god, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something t
side has raised in a single month this election cycle. no word yet on the romney camp's monthly total, but the campaign does say it collected more than $12 million in online donations. that is just since wednesday's debate. team romney is also rolling out a new tv ad today, featuring a former obama supporter, who says she has changed his mind. >> i'm disappointed in barack obama as my president, because he promised to bring us all together. and we're all going to be able to prosper. i don't see the prospering. >> and big news out of ohio, where an appeals court has upheld a ruling that reinstates early voting on the final three days before election day. the ruling means that people in ohio can continue to cast their ballots up until election day, depending on the decisions of local election boards. it's a win for the obama campaign, which has filed a lawsuit arguing everyone should be able to vote on those days. we'll have more on all these stories throughout the next three hours. >>> president obama today keeping his focus on jobs, as we have mentioned. the september jobs report show
that carries either president obama or mitt romney to victory on november the 6th. the expectations are very different for round two, and the stakes could not be higher. the consensus is clear, the president must get his mojo back after a weak first debate that left democrats demoralized and his lead eroding in both national polls and battleground states. for romney another debate win could give him the momentum to break the president's hold on swing states like ohio and wisconsin and give him the keys to the white house. and that is why with 21 days to go, the president must use this debate to shatter the mythical mitt romney who is chas currenty entranced the voters. case in point, romney's alleged plan to create 12 million jobs through those proven pro-growth policies. guess what? they're not proven at all, none of it is. in fact, "the washington post" fact checker today gives the most essential claim of romney's campaign four pinocchios. its equivalent of a pants on fire lie. calling even the most reliable of the numbers highly conditional. fact checker glen kessler writes simply, this i
room." >>> happening now, just two days before the first obama/romney debate and our new cnn national poll shows the president's lost, lost his post-convention bounce. but there's a different story in the battleground states. >>> mitt romney could make a huge impact on the supreme court. how he could change the direction of the court for decades. >>> they make $10 a day to put their lives on the line. but they could lose their job ifs they don't lose some weight. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they b
>>> mitt romney is done with interviews. >> you guys are great. you guys are great. >> and many are done -- >> i voted for him in 2008 and i plan to stick with him in 2012. i'll be voting for he and for vice president joe biden. >> i quonder why. >> the governor who was speaking on monday night at the debate was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. >> you can't remember what you just said last week. >> what is the cure for romnesia? >> obama care covers pre-existing conditions. >> this fall i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> he was asked again by reporters about this matter. he did not respond to those questions. >> what he said was kind of crazy. >> it doesn't change the definition. >> rape is rape. it is a crime. >> not familiar with precisely with exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. ♪ >>> we are just a dirty dozen days from the presidential election, and with the polls tight in the seven tossup states, you might call this the lightning round where with the candidates racing across the ghunt a furious figh
, romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> i know the president hoped for a more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when words rbt backed up by deeds. when defense spending the being cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and our strategy isn't one of partnership but of passive ti. >> on actual foreign policy his specifics were thin amounting to deepening critical cooperation and reaffirming historic ties. susan glasser, your overall assessment of mitt romney? there was no shortage of criticism for the president. what did you make of the prescriptions romney was laying out? >> thanks, alex. you made an important point to say this isn't necessarily a fully formed recipe for what a rom uh any administration would look like. he's seeking to gain a campaign advantage over president obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in many ways it's still not clear whether there i
and mitt romney ran all over him like a truck crushing a bug. we don't need a moderator for the next debate. we didn't have one last night. we'll talk about it, who won who lost, is it going to change anything. first, let's take a little time out to get the latest, today's current news update as always from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill, welcome back. it is a good day to be back. good morning everyone. with the first debate under their belts the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap. of the debate was moderated by mitt romney. oh wait, we mean jim lehrer who i think it is safe to say
political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that came from. congressman west, take it away. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data, correct? >> well, absolutely. >> good news is all this co
>> romney will also be campaigning today in iowa, says he's got the momentum on his side. >> we haven't heard an agenda from the president and that's why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead. >> the romney campaign, though, is distancing itself today from republican senate candidate in indiana, richard mourdock who romney only this week endorsed in a tv ad, the indiana republican set off a firestorm in a debate last night with these comments about rape and abortion. >> i struggled with it myself for a long time but i came to realize life is that gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> and they can just get along. monday's boca debate, "daily show" style. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thi
to become the first president to cast an early vote before heading off to ohio. the challenger, mitt romney, has just wrapped up at his second event today in that most crucial state, the one that's picked every president since 1960. the state that no republican has ever won the white house without. a new "time" magazine poll has the president up five points in ohio by the way, but never mind, earlier today in cincinnati, romney sounded resplendent and utterly triumphant. >> i mean, do you want real big change in this country? well, you're going to get it on november 6th. >> oh, yes, a romney white house would bring change already. and not just the addition of dressage on the north lawn. what would that change look like say on foreign policy, for example? i know, let's ask former secretary of state general colin powell. >> the governor who was speaking on monday night at the debate was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. so i'm not quite sure which governor romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy. >> he went on to call romney's foreign policy
the election. both mitt romney and president obama are hitting the campaign trail with new urgency. romney has been riding a wave after the first debate bichlt all accounts, president obama got the edge in the second debate. last chance for two men to go nose to nose in a race that's now too close to call. dana bash joins us, also from boca raton, florida, the site of last night's face-off. how was this debate different from the previous two? >> reporter: i think it was a flip of what you just described about the first debate. president obama was incredibly aggressive, snarky at times. mitt romney almost it looked like he was biting his tongue, trying not to be like that. both men understood it was clear that foreign policy is not high on the minds of voters and really wanted to make it about leadership. mitt romney came trying to show leadership of commander in chief. president obama came to make sure that didn't happen. time and time again, comments dripped with sarcasm. >> the biggest gop political threat facing america you said russia, not al qaeda. you said rusha. 1980s are now calling to
's turn to the campaign trail now. mitt romney in boston today, under new scrutiny of his leadership as governor of massachusetts. this is according to "the new york times." romney spent more than year of his four-year term out of the state on personal and political trips unrelated to the job. no secret he was running for president. but given his own emphasis on his leadership as governor, joy, is this news, is it problematic for him? or is this something that we're not talking about two or three days from now? >> it's hard to know what's problematic for mitt romney. i think what it does reinforce is the sense that personal ambition is the only true ideology that we can discern in mitt romney. in a sense he's done whatever he needed to do to get to the next step. the fact that he wanted to be president and he saw massachusetts to be an easier state to win than utah, it seems clear that he used being governor of massachusetts not for its own sake but as a stepping stone to the white house. >> he's not even competing in massachusetts, he's 30 points behind. >> that was something joe bi
, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, governor romney's got a math problem. for months mitt romney has hammered president obama about job growth. elect me, i can turn the economy around. but today the rationale for his entire campaign is crumbling. the new job numbers are out and unemployment has dropped to 7.8%. under 8% for the first time since president obama first came into office. that's progress on jobs and that's good for america. but it's absolutely demolishes a favorite romney talking point. >> three years later, unemployment is still above 8%. >> we've gone 41 months with unemployment above 8%. >> we've had 42 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> still 8% with over 43 straight months. >> today, that talking point disintegrated and president obama has a strong record to campaign on. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to tu
